Dallas Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. continues to show off his immense athletic and leaping abilities by throwing down monster dunks.

Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. is hoping to take a leap forward in his second season.  He played well as a rookie averaging 15.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.0 steal per game in 29.7 minutes a night.

Smith Jr. did shoot poorly, though.  He connected on just 39.5 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from 3-point territory.  His 69.4 percent on free throws leaves much to desire as well.

DSJ needs to improve his jump shooting and play better defense for the Mavericks to take a significant leap this season.

Smith Jr. has been working hard in the gym this offseason and documenting some insane highlights for fans to enjoy.

If that was not enough, DSJ threw down another fantastic jam here courtesy of Ballislife.

Both dunks are well worth watching and enjoying.  Dennis Smith Jr. has outstanding athletic ability, but hopefully, he is working hard on his shooting this offseason.

Final thoughts

Dennis Smith Jr. provided fans with two massive dunks to feast their eyes on over the last week.  It was indeed impressive, to say the least.

The additions of Luka Doncic and DeAndre Jordan should help Smith Jr. this season.  Jordan is one of the best screeners and lob targets in the NBA.  Doncic figures to help space the floor and take the ball-handling responsibilities out of DSJ’s hands some.  That could allow Smith Jr. to operate more efficiently and ultimately let the Dallas Mavericks to win more basketball games.

Fans should be excited for the coming season and be on the lookout for improvements they see from Dennis Smith Jr.  He has been working hard and possesses the abilities to be a great NBA player.  Hopefully, Smith Jr shows significant gains in his game this season.  Stay tuned.
